Chris Greutzemacher vs. Roli Delgado - Round 1: The fighters exchanged leg kicks. Chris (I ain't typing out Greutzemacher a lot, deal with it) put Delgado against the cage and landed some knees.

Chris landed two solid rights after the restart .Chris has a cut over his left eye. Both fighters landed solid elbows in the clinch but Chris landed another groin shot, this time with a knee. Still no point deduction. Close round. 10-9 Greutzemacher for me, though all 3 announcers have it for Delgado.
Round 2: Roli landed a nice two-punch combo. Greutzemacher shot in for the takedown. Chris stacked him up, but ate an upkick. Chris ended up in an awkward position for a few seconds, basically sitting on Roli's face somehow. Delgado set up a leg lock but Chris spun out and landed some punches.

Round 3: The fighters brawled a bit to start the final round, and both had their moments. Chris probably got the best of it though. Greutzemacher missed with a spinning backfist. Chris landed some big shots against the cage, and dug to the body. More big knees and short elbows.

Chris Greutzemacher defeated Roli Delgado by TKO, round 3.
Jonatas Novaes vs. Drew Fickett - Round 1: Novaes threw a headkick that was blocked, then landed a huge followup head kick that dropped Fickett even though he partially blocked it. Novaes initially decided to not go in for the kill, then changed his mind and pounced. 15 seconds of ground and pound forced the referee to wave off the fight. Jonatas Novaes defeated Drew Fickett by TKO, round 1
Mike Wessel vs. Matt Kovacs - Round 1: It took 40 seconds or so for them to actually engage. Wessel landed a combination and backed Kovacs up against the cage.

Wessel landed a punch to the back of the head that went unnoticed. Kovacs got up briefly but Wessel dragged him back down in the middle of the cage. Kovacs got back up again, and went back down again. Guess who got up again? Guess who went back to the floor again? 10-9 Wessel.
Round 2: Kovacs tried to box, but got wrapped up by Wessel and taken down. Wessel actually got to side control this time, but Kovacs exploded back up to his feet. Aaaaand they're back on the floor. This time Wessel looked for a crucifix but settled for side control. Back up, back down three more times. Now Kovacs is curled up on his all fours, and Wessel landed some big knees to the body. Kovacs seemed pretty hurt and stopped defending, which was enough for the ref to stop the bout. Not exactly the most exciting finish, or fight for that matter. Mike Wessel defeated Matt Kovacs by TKO (strikes), round 2
Lyle Beerbohm vs. Marcus Aurelio - Round 1: After some kicks, Beerbohm ducked a right hook and got a single leg takedown. Aurelio looked to attack from the bottom immediately.

The announcers argued about whether it was tight or not, but it wasn't and Beerbohm got out and they got back to their feet. Beerbohm got it back down immediately. The mat is super slippery due to all the blood. Beerbohm with another elbow. The cut isn't bleeding into Aurelio's eyes, so he's okay. Beerbohm closed out the round on top. 10-9 Beerbohm.
Round 3: Aurelio landed a big overhand right but got taken down against the cage. Aurelio squirmed away and got up. Beerbohm faked a takedown and landed a solid right, then...got the takedown.
